My name is Naren Basu. I am one of the oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgeons working hereat the Priory Hospital in Birmingham. Watch the video.
The symptoms of breast cancer are noticing a lump in the breast, change to the contour of the breast or the skin. Sometimes the skin can take on the appearance of an orange peel that we that we can notice fluid leaking from the nipple. On occasion, women may notice a lump in the armpit.
We also have the national screening program for women between the age of 50 to70, whereby they're offered mammograms every three years. And by virtue of doing mammograms, we may beable to identify a number of breast cancers.
If you have noticed any changes to the breastor have any breast cancer concerns, please see a healthcare professional or come and see our Multi inter disciplinary breast team at the Priory Hospital in Birmingham, Spire Parkway and Spire Little Aston
